Understanding Burlington property appreciation

Over time, the worth of a house will go up and down. Over a long enough period of time, home values generally go up. But, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your home appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you'll make a higher profit when you sell. Property values in Burlington change for numerous reasons, so how do you know what you're purchasing today won't depreciate the day after you close? The most important aspect to consider is that you choose an agent in Burlington who is familiar with the factors that influence local prices.

Many think that the economy is the biggest factor impacting real estate appreciation. After all, there are a handful of factors on a national level that adjust your home's value: unemployment, interest rates, inflation, and more. But the most significant factors that decide your home's value depend on the local Burlington economy and housing market.

Appreciation history - Have home prices increased or decreased over the last 5-10 years? Is the community thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability?

Economic factors - Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring? Is there a fair combination of business in an area, or does it depend on just one industry? These items play a part.
